ARCHIVAL RELEASE. For recent recordings, check out these other My Mean Magpie Releases.
Originally issued in 1997 as the Sissy Factor Cassette
(MMM005), this release was re-mastered with five bonus tracks for re-issue in 1997 on CDR.
5MP, was the side project of Five Seventeen who was involved experimenting with sounds outside of the more traditional Toys for Elliot and prior to his involvement with Georgia. Many evenings were spent fiddling with the 4-track, answering machine tape loops, noise and radio samples (tracks 2, 4, 6, 8, 11, 12, 14, 17, 19), others were spent in one off collaborations (track 1, 7, 17, 18) and the rest were random strays.
Highlights include cover versions of The Drop Nineteens "My Aquarium" and Cilla Black's "Love's Just a Broken Heart."
